AllMusic Review by

The three-disc Legends set features 50 of Glenn Miller's best-loved performances, including "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "Moonlight Serenade," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," and "In the Mood." The collection features a good mix of strictly instrumental songs as well as ones with vocalists, with "Fools Rush In" and "Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh" chief among those. Likewise, the tracks are pretty evenly divided between up-tempo numbers such as "My Blue Heaven," "Runnin' Wild," and "Sliphorn Jive" and sentimental, mellow songs like "Star Dust," "Serenade in Blue," and "Moonlight Cocktail." It may not be the most complete or definitive set of Glenn Miller's work available, but Legends does a good job of spotlighting the bandleader's best-known work.
